WHERE I WANT TO BE: Pink Sands, Harbour Island, Bahamas

Just steps from the famed pink sand beach for which it's named, Pink Sands is an authentic island paradise that will have you looking at the world through rose-colored glasses.

Right where Harbour Island's lush tropical vegetation gives way to its famous pink sand beaches, you'll find a little corner of paradise: Pink Sands. A chic haven that effortlessly blends the authentic island experience with modern touches like sushi at Blue Bar, the resort offers something for every taste. Pink Sands' 25 candy-colored cottages are nestled in a fragrant garden of hibiscus and jasmine, their wooden shutters leading out to private patios overlooking turquoise waters under sunny skies.

Whether you prefer a stroll through the flower-lined streets of Dunmore Town, a trip out on the water to fish or dive, a romantic candlelit dinner on the Garden Terrace, a rousing game of tennis, or a lost afternoon spent sitting on the beach with a couple of umbrellas - one over your head and one in the ice-cold drink in your hand - the possibilities are endless.

At Pink Sands, the outlook is always rosy.
